Portland Sights



North Mississippi Avenue

North Mississippi Avenue Review

Four blocks of old storefronts reinvented as cafés, collectives, shops, and music venues along this north Portland street in the Boise neighborhood showcase the indie spirit of the city's do-it-yourselfers and creative types. Bioswale planter boxes, found-object fences, and café tables built from old doors are some of the innovations you'll see around this hip new district. At the hub of it all is the ReBuilding Center, an outlet for recycled building supplies that has cob (clay-and-straw) trees and benches built into the facade. Take MAX light rail to the Albina/Mississippi station.
